Backend servers

Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

In a typical Content Software for File system configuration, the backend servers access the network function in two different methods:

  • Standard TCP/UDP network for management and control operations.
  • High-performance network for data-path traffic.
Note: To run both functions on the same physical interface, contact your customer support representative.

The high-performance network used to connect all the backend hosts must be DPDK-based. This internal Content Software for File network also requires a separate IP address space (see Network Planning and Network Configuration). For this, the Content Software for File system maintains a separate ARP database for its IP addresses and virtual functions and does not use the kernel or operating system ARP services.
